In terms of slaves estimated in the revolt, the German Coast rising was reported to be larger. However, in terms of white people and slaves killed (approaching two hundred and fifty), Nat Turner's Rebellion was far more significant. Also, while few outside a limited area along the Mississippi River knew what had happened, reports of Nat Turner's Rebellion circulated throughout the United States. As depicted below, both Federal troops and state militia were involved in surpression. During the weeks which followed, fears of slave attacks spread rapidly and reprisals against black people occured in many parts of the South.
In terms of influencing Southern attitudes towards slavery and manumission during the 1830s and later, Nat Turner's Rebellion was far more important.
